I took a listen, but did not recognize this piece as a dance I knew.  It
certainly had some portions of the phrasing that sounded quite feasible for
creating a choreography though.

Perhaps somewhere in the SCA someone has written a dance for it?  That's my
best guess.  (that, or it just had some of the musical queues that would
make one feel like they should be dancing to it).  :)
